Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2—When Miss Miles assigns a sunflower-growing competition and pairs the narrator with her former friend, Sophie, the animosity between the partners has a negative effect on their seedling. Their teacher observes, "This sunflower isn't happy" and suggests talking to it. With the aid of classmate Gabriel, the girls build a cardboard angel to watch over the pot. These cooperative efforts not only help their plant thrive ("It stood straight! It stood tall! It was strong!"), but also renew their relationship. Dunbar's sunny collage illustrations show a curly-haired, smiling angel who resembles the teacher. While the book is not an essential purchase, the rocky emotional terrain of feuding friends is ably conveyed.—Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada

Review

This is a gentle story about unhappiness, bullying and reconciliation, with an understated message which is nevertheless important to small children. -- School Librarian

A celebration of friendship, angels and sunflowers. Two best friends have fallen out. This tale of how cultivating a sunflower turns blight to delight, with the help of a sunflower angel made of a cardboard roll, is elevated to something special with Dunbar's stylish pictures. They fill the page with color; a stirring incentive to get planting. --Independent

A gift to any teacher wondering how to subtly help children heal broken friendships. Every child could identify with the theme, enjoy the celebration of friendship on which the book ends and understand the symbolism of the flourishing sunflower. -- English 4-11
